A study was conducted to estimate the prevalence, antibiotic sensitivity and distribution of serotypes and virulence genes of Salmonella in surface waters of the Khoumane River. The serotypes as well as antibiotic-resistance patterns and gene virulence of the Salmonella isolates were determined. 84 water samples were tested during the August 2010- July 2011 period. Among them, 2, 38 were positive for Salmonella. All strains were identified Salmonella Butantan. Results of antibiotic susceptibility tests showed that both Salmonella are sensitive to C3G and Quinolones and are resistant to Amoxicillin and Sulfonamides. All Salmonella strains tested were positive for the invasion gene invA and the virulence gene spvC carried by a plasmid with 54Kb size. These Salmonella can be transmitted to human populations through the use of water from the river.
